[PIC] Throwback Thursday: One Man’s Trashed Corvette is Another Man’s Treasure

[PIC] Throwback Thursday: One Man's Trashed Corvette is Another Man's Treasure

It’s time for Throwback Thursday where we feature vintage photos of Corvettes. Today’s selection may be hard to look at for some, so if you have a weak constitution, look away!

In the old days when a Corvette was all used up, they were disposed of by taking that final road trip down the street to the junkyard. We recognize that even new Corvettes today end up in junkyards too when crashed, burned, flooded or totaled. But seeing these classic Corvettes lined up sort of brings a tear to our eyes.

From what we understand, the picture was taken in the Seattle area back when this junkyard was known as “Lincoln’s Salvage”. We have several other photos of junked classic Corvettes from the same location which you can see on our Vintage Corvette board at Pinterest.com.
